Sponsored Post: We Want to Hear Your Cheer – Don’t Miss This Cool Contest!

Did you play team sports as a kid? Growing up in a small town, team sports were huge for me. Those of you who know me now can feel free to laugh at that image. But it’s true. Of course sports are a great way to stay healthy and learn about teamwork, but for kids they’re also just fun. They’re something liberating about being one part of a greater whole. My kids are just getting to the age when they’ll be ready for team sports. An early attempt at soccer with Esme when she was four was hilarious if not totally successful. But I think they’re just about ready. Watching The World Cup this summer has given both my kids the fever for soccer.

Just in time for prime soccer season is a really fun contest sponsored by BMO. They want to hear all about your kids’ excitement for the beautiful game. Literally. BMO is searching for the most spirited team cheers across Canada. Youth teams (ages 7 to 12) can submit a video their team’s best cheer for a chance to win a trip to attend a Major League Soccer game. How cool is that? And don’t worry about including any fancy camera work – it’s not about technical skills. This is all about team spirit. Submit your cheers here!

It’s no surprise to see BMO boosting kids’ soccer. They already sponsor over 20,000 youth house leagues as well as supporting both the National Men’s and Women’s teams.

So, back to the kids! Each team that sends in their cheer will receive a BMO water bottle and a special offer to open up a kids’ account. Over the course of the program, up to 100 teams each week will be chosen at random to receive $75 gift card to go toward team expenses.

In September, a grand prize will be named and a team and their coaches will win a trip to see attend a Major League Soccer game.
